Recover initial investments, Durangos, or the resellers, and lowered demand means you have a product standing around. Not moving the product means less profit then moving it with a lesser profit then could be made at the higher price. A penny each from 10 persons is more then 5 pennies from one. It's that easy. There have already been a reseller announcing a price cut in this thread, proving my point. However, feel free to tell me i'm wrong.

You are wrong. A lot of companies do not cut prices after "recover initial investments".

It's pretty amusing that you come up with these simplistic arguments when you have clearly don't understand much about basic economics or business. If you did, you would know that maximizing sales volume does not maximize profits.

If you need some good learning resources, PM me and I'll point you in the right direction.

COuld we keep this thread based on the DNX 408 instead of this economics talk that does not need to be in here. If you want to discuss that, why not make a thread for it?

Anyway back on topic, TD do you have a ETA for the servo vibration pads?

Show me anyone that doesn't rather make 5 bucks in profit rather then no profit at all. Keep in mind no profit at all also means you have a paid item standing on a shelf that you actually invested in. So it's not just the 5 bucks, it's actually the investment and the 5 bucks your missing out on.

No, whats amusing is that you apparently aren't reading what i write, but rather skip half the text, and replace it with pixie dust. Maximizing sale volume is of course not the way to maximize profit. Maximizing profit is. How? By finding the balance between how many you can sell, and how much people are willing to pay for them. After expenses have been done away with, you have profit. Right now a reseller has a high expense situation due to Durango having a limited supply. They also have a higher amount of buyers then kit's they can get access to. So, the reseller bases his price on stocking price, expenses as taxes, personnel fee's, rent, and everything else that running a store means you need to make to stay in business. On top of that, they simply add "what they dare to" to make a sale profitable. To much, and they wont sell, to little and they will sell out without making as much profit as they could. Right now, they sell out faster then they can restock, so prices are spot on, or to low. As first adopters get there kits, and other buyers are more skeptical about buying prices drop to make them interested. Both as a result of Durango having a larger stockpile of kits they want to move, and they drop prices, but also as a result of the shop them self making less profit on the kit. Key words being 'less profit', as compared with no profit. Again, maximizing profit is about balancing this right. And most shopkeepers are fairly good at this. And as such prices drop to keep supply and demand somewhat in balance while making good profit. Show me someone who rather make no profit while trying to make 100 bucks in profit for a item he has plenty of, rather then actually making 75 bucks of each, and moving anywhere from a few to a truckload. Well, other then you, that is.
